Healthy School Lunches!!!

Hey everyone,
I just got this Letter and wanted to pass it on. Please, even if it is only $1 or $2, donate. Help them get our children healthy Schoool Lunches. AND then please copy and paste and e-mail it to everyone you know!!! Together we can help make the change!


I don't think one more day should go by where a school has to serve children processed pizza or frozen chicken by-product for lunch.

But Congress is still thinking about delaying legislation that would bring the biggest improvements to the National School Lunch Program in its sixty-year history. Schools may have to wait at least another year for change.

Can you make a donation today to help secure healthier school lunches for our nation's children?

In the last few days, the Slow Food network has stepped up in a big way, sending over 35,000 letters to Congress. It's clear that public awareness about childhood obesity is at an all-time high. People understand that it's time to change the way America eats. And for more than 31 million children, school lunch is critical.

But public awareness isn't enough - we have to turn it into action. That's where you come in. As legislators turn their attention to this fall's elections, we need your donation to help keep up the pressure.

We also need your gift to support hundreds of new projects that our volunteer leaders are starting in communities across the country. Through school garden and education programs and initiatives to expand fresh, local food options in underserved neighborhoods, our volunteer leaders are helping kids develop the healthy eating habits that will last throughout their lives.

There's never been so much potential for change. Please make your donation to Slow Food USA today and help support our nationwide effort to protect children's health.

With thanks,

Josh Viertel
